Kate Gosselin's sister made headlines last week when she spoke out about the controversial reality TV family for the first time ever, and now RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned Kate's brother-in-law was arrested last summer for criminal attempt at theft.
According to the Lititz Borough Police Department in Pennsylvania, Jeffrey Michael Wilber, 44, — Kendra Wilber's husband — was arrested on May 29, 2013 and charged after going through a homeowner's personal belongings while there on a drywall job.
Jeffrey owns J M Wilber Drywall and while in a home on the 200 block of South Spruce Street authorities say "he was seen on surveillance camera…going in and out of rooms where no work was being done, rummaging through dresser drawers and looking in closets and under beds."
The case was sent to Judge Edward Tobin of the Pennsylvania Magisterial District Court and on June 7, 2013, the Criminal Attempt of Theft charge was dismissed, however Jeffrey entered a guilty plea to "Disorderly Conduct Obscene Lang/Gest." and the case is now closed.
As Radar previously reported, Jeffrey's wife and Kate's sister, Kendra, spoke out for the first time revealing she hasn't seen her sister or eight nieces in nephews in six years.
"I guess we weren’t totally on board with what was going on with the kids, I guess we weren’t excited enough for her and were concerned about her family."
"I guess we have our own life and she wants a big life and we don’t fit in," Kendra said.
"We are just normal everyday people and she doesn’t want us to be part of her life."
